Okay, some progress.

Using Active picture set to a 50 byte 20x20 bitmap .GIF works pretty well. 1900 shadow Actives, ~2000 objects running in debugger at maximum ~32MB.

Runs a little slower in the middle of it all, but not very noticeable and I'm also running this on a laptop (although a quite powerful one).

Still open for other suggestions though.

Pretty sure HWA will clear your problems up. Have you tried it yet?

Maybe there's a way to randomly generate the level like you are doing BUT then capture it as a picture and turn it into one big background object all during runtime? ... possible?

If that's possible, I'm pretty sure that background won't slow anything down, at least not much, so ... yea .. IF it's possible ..

I did not realize that MMF2 had a create backdrop from Active feature. I thought it only had paste.

Have fun! . It can be optimized a bit. . . sorry for the mess. CBF to straighten it up. BTW just a heads up - keep in mind that whenever you make a grid based movement like I have done in this example that your character CAN move diagonally sometimes so you'll have to put some events in place to keep him from jumping over some walls etc.

cool guys. thanks!

I have my movement based on MoveIt, one of the best extensions in the world
if flag off + repeat while movement key is pressed -> flag on, queue movement, execute movement -> flag off when move done

when I'm done with it I'll upload it on TDC for you guys to see

Maybe you could use an array to store data about which tiles have been explored and which haven't. Then when the player moves 1 tile, you can check against the array and only place black tiles, or whatever, on the part of the map that's visible to the player.
